Track Name: King Of The Travellers
How’s your ma? Is your da workin?
We’re in the poor house not a pot to piss in
We voiced our discomfort, sure noone was listenin’
So we cut a losses and now we’re escaping away
Through an Ocean of complications and red tape
Sailing a coffin to a so called safer place
For a year or two, possibly to stay
Said my goodbyes and I got pissed at my own wake

I’m the best man, I did it!
Fucked off for the sake of a standard of living
We sing to a chorus of pure cynicism
Sure look at your man there ah he thinks he’s brilliant

I’m not ready to go home
Just one more trip around the pole
Sure this is it, sure this is it.
Track Name: Moby Mick
The smartest words I ever heard
Were tattooed on the leg of this crusty turd
It said “fuck you stay punk” in Indian ink
The beauty of those words they made me think that
Everyones an artist but most of them just never got started
Should I live another fifty one years
or die right now under all my fears

I guess now that I’m ok
But I won’t forget about them days

So I guess I’m back on anti depressants
But I’m not gonna beat myself up
Because I know it’s only for the time being
Until I can pick myself up
I used to think that it was weak
But what’s so strong about jumping off the Granville bridge
I gotta stop get out of bed
and quit thinking about dying before I’m dead
Track Name: Bail In
I couldn’t tell you what it is I love about this place
Its always pissing rain and no one understands my name
The moneys face is a woman I was raised to hate
But I think I’ll stay

There’s opportunity the reason that I first escaped
Sweet fuckin basement shows
And weed that’ll blow off your face
Here I’m not forced into a debt I shouldn’t have to pay
So I want to stay

I refuse to pay for someone else’s bad decisions
I refuse to prop up a crooked backwards banking system
